$230,000 40 string abomination

I almost fell off my chair laughing, when i saw this…
The “inventor” of the abomination seen above and known as the “StringStation” is proposing a price of only $230,000 (the price of a house) to design and build his dreamed 40 string instrument that can be used to produce cheesy, sleep inducing new age music…
You can laugh at the video and website
Aphex Twin can make more interesting music with $500 worth of gear…

The funny thing is that the “StringStation” is basically a few Chapman sticks and Steinberg guitars put together with some MIDI interfaces.. you could literally build one for a lot less money.
Either way, why would anyone want to build a 40 string beast? we only have two hands and 10 fingers!
